Heli-Fuel Systems – Store, Transfer & Purification for Jet Fuel
Heli-Fuel Systems | Jet Fuel Storage, Transfer & Purification Systems by Power Transfer Products – Fluid Handling Systems
Power Transfer Products is a distributor of heli-fuel systems to meet any type of fueling station (onshore and offshore) application and its needs. Heli-fuel systems consist of two or three independent modules to store, transfer, and purify jet fuel. These systems can be used on offshore platforms or at any onshore fueling station.
Complete heli-refuel systems include tanks, the laydown skid to hold them, a deluge system, a fuel transfer pump unit. They also include meters, hose reels, static reels, valves, strainer, piping and pipe supports, skid bases, and cabinets. Power Transfer Products provides everything needed to equip its customers to fuel aircraft vessels. All helicopter refueling skids and systems can be designed for any location, hazardous or non-hazardous. Depending on specifics (i.e.: space available, refueling frequency, weather / temperature conditions, etc.) and individual need, Power Transfer Products can customize your heli-refuel system. Power Transfer Products can provide a complete heli-fuel package, partial, or as determined per the customer’s specifications.
Reliability and durability are equally important as cost efficiency and effectiveness. Offshore heli-refuel systems, in particular, must be scalable, so modular systems may be needed. All components are made from stainless steel construction; all electrical devices and panels are explosion-proof, and all conduit is galvanized.
A buffer frame on the laydown skid makes it easier to move the tanks into place. It also serves as protection of the deluge system from impacts during tank handling. Tanks must be able to be transported as well as stored. More flexible transportable tanks may be used for storage as well as for transporting fuels. Capacities range from 2900L (most common) to 4800L.
The pump unit may be electrically driven when temperatures at the refueling station are expected to fall below zero degrees Celsius. Or, you may require a pneumatic driven pump. Stationary and portable pumps (fuel transfer pumps) can be at the laydown skid or separate altogether.
The dispensing unit is typically located near, or on a platform on the helideck. The dispensing unit is mostly composed of stainless steel components to meet various global regulation requirements.
All heli-refueling stations and systems must comply with the particular domestic and/or global regulations observed and enforced within that region or area including CleanDiesel requirements. Typically, the helicopter refueling system is designed and regulated in accordance with the type of operating area (where the vessel will be fueled), type of vessel, and class society.
